By submitting the Riverside City College admission application, you will be electing Riverside City College as your HOME COLLEGE. Riverside City College is one of the three colleges in the Riverside Community College District. Be sure to apply for the college where you wish to receive services such as financial aid and counseling. Once your application has been processed, you will be eligible to enroll in classes at Moreno Valley College and Norco College in addition to Riverside City College, so you do not need to submit a separate application for each college.

You may submit an admission application if you meet any of the following requirements:

  • Graduated from high school, passed the CA High School Proficiency Exam, or passed the GED examination.
  • Did not graduate from high school but are 18 years of age or older.
  • Did not graduate from high school but attained a Certificate of Completion.
  • A current high school student in grades 11 or 12 who meets eligibility or special program requirements for concurrent enrollment in both high school and college.
  • An international student who needs to begin the international student admission process for program acceptance and I-20 form eligibility.
